Colossians 3:2 – A Measure

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

Colossians 3:2

A Measure

A litre, a meter, a pound or ounce
A gram a dram as confidence mounts
A sheave, a bale, a drum or cord
To tip the scale, unsheathe the Sword

A fight, a scrap, a bluff or battle
To engage the foe or saber-rattle
A dollar, a yen, of gold or guinea
To love the known or pursue the many

A yard of youth, a pinch of zeal
A spirited lunge if conditions appeal
A stint in time, or life’s full measure
Worldly luster or heaven’s treasure?
